I voted no. The aluminum spar is fast going the way of the wooden spar. They soon will not make sense even for cruising boats. Why would we make a rule to put them on a racing boat? Silly!!

The copy of the rules that I have states:

405 Mast,Boom, Pole, Bowspirt

The forbidden materials are:
-Titanium
-Carbon fibre whose tension modules is greater than 245 GPa (manufacturer certification compulsory)
-Halyard hooks are forbidden


It looks that carbon spars are allowed.

Geez...what a dummy! I should have read the question more carefully. I meant to have voted yes! The rule should say Carbon is allowed.
